    The Martin Luther King Day video message delivered on NFL Network began with a celebration of the passion and strength of black men. However, before it was over, it accused Americans of viewing black athletes through racist stereotypes. The video opens with several minutes of various NFL players saying that when they “look in the mirror” they see successful, strong, compassionate, and intelligent black men. But that is not all. They also see entertainers, athletes, lawyers, mayors, CEOs, and every manner of accomplished American. During the segment on occupations, the images of successful black CEOs, mayors, first responders and the...

    With just days to go in office and facing calls to resign, President Donald Trump is planning to spend the upcoming week taking a ceremonial victory lap and making last-minute use of his presidential powers. A trip to the border is in order, pardons appear to be in the works, and so, too, is an award ceremony for one of his favorite football coaches as well as a top political ally.

    Had the Houston Texans stayed the course and followed the recommendation of the search firm Korn Ferry, they likely would have hired Pittsburgh Steelers vice president of football and business administration Omar Khan as their next general manager, league sources told ESPN. Khan and ESPN Monday Night Football analyst Louis Riddick, who are both minority candidates, were the two finalists before Texans owner Cal McNair changed his mind, ignored the recommendation of the search firm he paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to do weeks of work and hired former New England Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio, sources...

    The Las Vegas Raiders defeated the New York Jets 31-28 on Sunday afternoon. Up 28-24 with less than a minute remaining in the outing, New York punted the ball away to the Raiders. Las Vegas started off at their own 39-yard line with 42 seconds left and zero timeouts. First quarterback Derek Carr delivered a 15-yard strike to tight end Darren Waller, who subsequently spiked the ball. Then came an incomplete pass, which halted the proceedings. Finally, Carr found wide open rookie receiver Henry Ruggs to take a 30-28 lead. One extra point later and the Raiders found themselves walking...

    The NFL has fined the New Orleans Saints $500,000 and stripped them of a 2021 seventh-round draft pick for violating league COVID-19 protocols, a person with direct knowledge of the discipline told the Associated Press on Sunday. The New England Patriots were fined $350,000 for similar violations, the person said, speaking to the AP on condition of anonymity because neither the league nor the teams have announced the fines or loss of draft pick. New Orleans was fined as a repeat offender; Sean Payton previously was docked $150,000 and the team $250,000 because the head coach failed to properly wear...

    Nick Chubb was about to get Cleveland Browns bettors a great backdoor cover. Then he took a left turn just before the goal line. The Browns were 3-point favorites at the beginning of the week, went to 3.5 and then 4 points at BetMGM as the week went on. They led the Houston Texans 10-7 with about a minute to go and it looked like a push or loss for Browns bettors. Then, Chubb broke free. Chubb was running to daylight down the sideline, no Texans defender anywhere near him. It was an easy touchdown. Then, just before he scored,...
